Women Pro Team Joins Ritchey
The Webcor Builders women’s pro cycling team has just signed on for sponsorship with Ritchey Design, and will be joing their roster of other sponsored teams like Colavita-Baci presented by Cooking Light, Jamis-Sutter Home presented by Colavita and United Healthcare presented by Maxxis.
The Webcor Builders is acknowledged as the oldest professional women’s cycling team in North America. John Frechette, the chief operating officer for Ritchey, says that the company “is proud of each of the teams it has chosen to support for the 2010-11 season.”
Riders from all the sponsored teams will get to use Ritchey design products, including their WCS hammerhead TT bars, one-bolt posts, and the wheels, of course (WCS 4-Axis Stem, WCS Allo 1-Bolt, and WCS Super Zeta, to name a few.)
The pro-team riders have also responded in kind and have given Ritchey reason to be happy with their sponsorships. Last season saw the Colavita men’s team end up with the number one ranking in the United States, by way of more than twenty victories and podium finishes and five riders showing up among the top-15 list of the NRC individual ranks.
The Colavita/Baci women’s team also dominated their criterium events last season, all of which apparently means a happy sponsor in Ritchey Design. The teams, too, are glad to be getting the support. As Thierry Attias (Momentum Sports Group, LLC. president) says, “Ritchey products are an integral part of our team’s success.”
